On the school holidays I went to my first concert, Pink’s Truth About Love concert in Melbourne. It was really loud with all the people screaming and the music. First The Kin came out and played for about half an hour (30 min) and went off stage. Then they put some music on and every one danced. Pink then came out and sang some songs about 2 hours before the concert finished. There where lots of taxis and lots of people everywhere when we left Rod Laver Arena. I was very lucky as the night I went they were filming Pinks concert DVD and I might be in it so keep an eye out for it. It will be out in the USA in November this year.
The concert was fantastic especially when Pink sang upside down, twirling around in the air and then at the end flying across the audience.
Here is a clip I found on Youtube of my favourite part of the concert.
Here are some facts about Pink:

For the last two weeks I’ve been on school holidays and have done lots of great things. On the middle weekend I went to the “block”, click here to read a previous post I have written about the block. These holidays I went to the “block” with our family friends Wendy, Anthony, Emily and Cameron. Cameron who’s also in my grade this year has written a guest post about our trip.
On the holidays I went to Jarrod’s Block with my family. I rode the quad bike. I went through the muddy puddles and mud went everywhere. The back of my coat was covered in mud.
Jarrod and I went yabbying. We caught lots of big and little yabbies. Jarrod and I found some rabbit holes so we made up some homemade traps with wire and sticks. But we did not catch any rabbits. Jarrod’s Dad got a rabbit and we used this for yabby bait.
My sister Emily rode Jarrod’s motorbike, it is a two wheeler. Emily loved it so much she did not want to get off the motorbike and her coat was also covered in mud.
For dinner on the BBQ we had dim Sims, sausages, hamburgers and hash browns cooked by the Dads’ it was delicious. For breakfast we had bacon and eggs on the BBQ.
I slept in a room with Jarrod, Tyler and Melane in my sleeping bag.
Tyler, Jarrod, Emily and I all had a turn at Emily’s homemade rocket launcher. It was awesome and we all got wet. The rocket went high up in the sky and my Dad held the pole.
Thanks for a great weekend Jarrod, Tyler, Melane and Cameron.
On the 15th of September I went to watch the V8 supercars at the Sandown 500, in Melbourne. I went with my dad, brother Tyler and some of my dads friends.
The V8′s are a unique type of racing car to Australia, you can learn more about by clicking here.
We went for a walk around to look at the different cars and got lots of posters from the different teams. I also got stuck in a tree but eventually my dad came and helped me down and went rolling down a hill it was really cool.
Here is a video I made of my trip to Sandown 500
